In text messages with the cable network, Chambers daughter gave an explanation for what happened to her mother during the two weeks she was missing.
"She injured her head on a tree," Chambers texted. "She was very disoriented as a result and thankfully ended up near a water source -- a river bed. She thought her best chance of survival was to stay next to a water source."
In the texts, Chambers says her mother went without food the entire time she was missing.
"She was too weak and disoriented (to seek help)," she said. "She was unable to take more than a step or two without collapsing. This prevented her from being able to seek out help. She told me she was so dehydrated she couldn't open her mouth."
